Many animated objects have useful functions but become dangers when uncontrolled. This huge forge or oven is animated to protect a workspace or kitchen, travel alongside its owner, or both.

Most animated objects are created for convenience or out of vanity. Spellcasters often animate brooms and dishes to aid with cleaning, books and scrolls for aid with research, and carts and carriages for transport. Most objects are animated without the intent of using them as guardians, and many animated objects exist without the rest of the world ever noticing. Only those with money and power choose to animate objects as guardians, and these are the animated objects most likely encountered on adventures.

The process for animating objects varies from object to object and by the needs of the ritual. Some rituals designate a controller whom the animated object obeys.

Without orders, many animated objects fall back to defensive tactics. In other cases, the ritual may have been poorly performed or may have failed after many years, causing the animated object to enter an uncontrollable state where it attacks anything it sees.
